    Vitamin success stories

    I know that doctors won't prescribe vitamins, but that's because they don't research or study them. It isn't in their profession to do so, because they do not study nutrition. But loads of research since the late 1800's has proven that vitamin and nutrient deficiencies along with too much...

    Greetings Earthings!

    After nearly 20 years of having fibro, I figured I needed some fellow support. Since no one in my family knows what it's like, it's hard for them to understand, as you all well know. A little background. I have been married nearly 22 years and have three children - 20, 19, and 16. I'm also a...

    Spring time allergies as a trigger?

    So, as some of you may already know, I've managed to really minimize my fibro pain over the last 6 months. I've been fighting other issues, some which are symptoms of fibro, but the pain itself has been very minimal (unless I eat any sugar at all - sugar always gives me nasty flares.) My...

    Sleep - the most alternative and natural cure of all!

    My doctor has me doing things differently at night so I not only fall asleep, but sleep well. I'm taking a mixture of herbs and melatonin 20 minutes before bed, and it's helping tremendously. I used to take valerian root on its own to help me sleep, and it was moderately helpful. This herb...

    Topical treatments...herbal creams/lotions?

    Last year a friend of mine gave me an ointment that was meant for topical pain relief. Where I live, medical marijuana is legal and it's not hard to get a prescription. The ointment was made from cannabis and I loved it because I could use it during the day without getting high (I have 2...

    Naturopathic doctor claims to know what causes fibro

    I have an appointment to see the doctor. I understand that he is famous for helping people with fibromyalgia find nearly total relief from their symptoms, but he puts you on a strict diet and herb plan that you cannot stray from in order to stay well. Symptoms come back if you stray from his...
